    Alloa Athletic manager Jack Ross said "From a football point of view it is a good draw, it's something different, the last thing I wanted was a tie against a team from our league because we have already had that in the last round and we play these teams often enough. I would always prefer to be at home in a cup tie but the fact we are away, logistically it is more difficult but purely from a footballing perception the coaching staff and players are hugely excited and we are looking forward to the game".
